The North American esports organization Chaos Esports Club might become the second team from the region to step down from competitive Counter-Strike after 100 Thieves exited the game just a month back on 12th October. The organization has already started exploring options to transfer all the players on their CS:GO lineup as per a report by dbltap.
Chaos Esports Club Might Be Exiting CS:GO
The North American region is seeing a decline in competitive Counter-Strike since the game shifted online due to the global health crisis. As most of the teams are shifting to Europe where the competition is still thriving a few are stepping down from the game due to the heavy logistical costs involved.
100 Thieves was the first organization to quit competing in CS:GO this year and now it seems Chaos Esports Club might also be on the same path. The organization has reportedly started finding out suitable transfer options for all their players who could be signed all together or individually depending on the offers that come their way.
The organization has participated in both top-tier and local tournaments in 2020 while success came their way in almost all the local tournaments it was not the same when it came to competing against tier-one teams.
Chaos EC still did well for itself until the team was being led by the Valve banned British-Canadian in-game leader Joshua "steel" Nissan as they reached the semifinals of both ESL One: Cologne 2020: North America and DreamHack Open Summer 2020: North America. But since he moved over to VALORANT to pursue a new career with 100 Thieves, the team once again dropped the ball as his Mexican replacement Edgar "MarKE" Maldonado just did not add enough firepower to the team.
